    I use my thunb for the Note 10 and it works fine. I do have little thumbs though.

    perfect every time. programmed thumb and index from right and left. seems to cover any awkward opening scenarios. lol just tried my other fingers and didnt realize too many failed attempts will lock you out for a time.

    I read a suggestion on the GN20U underscreen reader to scan the same finger into the first two of your finger slots, adjusting angles a bit on the second, for greater accuracy and faster access - worth a try...

    View 2 emails on different SDuo screens at the same time

    (Found on Reddit r/surfaceduo)
    1. Open Outlook app; pick an email
    2. Open the Outlook calendar app on the other screen
    3. In the lower left of the Calendar app, click the mail envelope
    4. Your list of emails is there and you can read side by side.
    That's as good as 2 instances of Edge running side by side. I hope Microsoft makes this possible across the Office apps.

    For those with a strong stomach, watch a Duo get destroyed in the name of science. Or rather in the name of YouTube views. The torture starts at 3:35. Rewind a bit if you want to see a Surface slim pen destroyed as well.. :confused:

    A pretty cool observation is that the hinge actually adds a ton of structural rigidity. The guy tries his darndest to break the Duo by bending it, but the displays stubbornly keep coming on just fine. Jerry: 0, Microsoft: 1. :thumbsup:

    No issues with it, I use it to unlock the Dou everytime I use it...

    This guy is such a sicko - seen other "tech destruction porn" video's he's done...what's the real purpose? He's even worse than "Will it Blend?"

    The calm psychopath voice doesn't help matters. The real purpose is obviously ad revenue. But on the upside, I was pleasantly surprised by how sturdy that super thin Duo is! I thought it would snap like a cracker, but it held up way better than many slab phones. This device is looking better and better.

    Regarding Pen usage... I have a slim pen and I'm constantly losing it because it does not attach securely.. That is the most frustrating part for me. Pen works surprisingly well when its actually in my hand though.
